Feng Shui & Green Living

About Feng Shui:

Feng Shui started in China approximately 4,000 years ago.  It is the ancient art of placement and is a practice of aesthetics.  It uses the principles of Heaven and Earth to help improve life and achieve harmony in the environment.   A focus of Feng Shui is on the movement of invisible energy called Chi which fills all living things.     

Many different cultures have some form of Feng Shui.  India, for example has Vastu, and the Native Americans have The Medicine Wheel.  Feng Shui was developed through observing the cycles and natural laws of nature and is considered the first “green” design. There are different schools of Feng Shui: Black Hat, Intuitive or Form School, The Compass School, and Instinctive Feng Shui™.  

Although I have learned a little about each style of Feng Shui, I have chosen advanced certification in Instinctive Feng Shui™, Medicine Wheel Feng Shui™, and Seven Star Blessing Space Clearing™ from the Interior Alignment® School.  I chose this forms of Feng Shui because I believe they encompass a deeper, more nature-based, yet updated approach which is perfect for our current life situations.  The founder of the Interior Alignment® School, Denise Linn, has studied extensively with native-based cultures and shamans around the world and has incorporated these teachings into this unique form of Feng Shui

Instinctive Feng Shui™  is a system of analyzing and enhancing the energy and design of an environment.  It creates an empowering and nurturing living space which has a profound effect on a person’s life.   Instinctive Feng Shui™ utilizes a blend of:  traditional Chinese practices in addition to modern western Feng Shui practices, symbolism, western astrology, teachings from nature-based cultures, healthy home concepts, and a clients’ goals. 

Medicine Wheel Feng Shui ™ is based on Native American teachings and works with bringing the energy of the natural world, the four directions, and the four elements into your environment. This system brings  a sense of beauty, harmony, and balance into your life and living space.

Seven Star Blessing Space Clearing™  is a method of clearing unwanted and stagnant energy in a space.  Just as you should physically clean your home, you should clean the energy (chi) of your home. The environment is then blessed with a seven star blessing and the client’s positive intentions to seal in the sparkling energy.  Infusing a home with your intentions can be a powerful form of affirmation.  After a space clearing, your home should feel better and look brighter and clearer.

Green Living is a term used today to describe living in an environmentally friendly way.  You can create a healthier environment by gradually eliminating pollutants and toxins in your home and yard.  By designing more sustainable, nurturing spaces you can lead a more balanced life and help protect the earth.
